Advance Notice Bid Opportunities.

Finding out about government bid opportunities ahead of the curve is standard operating procedure for IMS. Being a true public sector project research firm, our daily project leads and agency-verified Advance Notices make our lead research unique. Advance Notices give information prior to official agency publication allowing time to strategize on teaming opportunities and manage the RFP/RFQ/SOQ process way before the deadline.

Daily verified project information and over 35,000 Agency contacts.

A client-privileged website database includes research from thousands of public agencies such as CIPs, budgets, bond measure reports, newspaper articles and legislative agendas. This remarkable tool saves time by showing a history of an agency’s projects and direct links to their home and contact pages. Our database will quickly become an essential tool for your long range planning efforts.

Cradle-to-grave lifecycle of public sector projects.

Our Awarded Contract Report (ACR) completes the cradle-to-grave lifecycle of government projects. The ability to know which firms are winning projects has become a key element of marketplace knowledge. The ACR is a valuable tool for architecture, engineering and construction firms for providing that data.
